Deserts and Beyond

Deserts and beyond...places in and around the southern California deserts and beyond. Photo taken at Canyon Lake, in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, December 2011. A few minutes later, after the sun disappeared, these cliffs were their normal color. They were only golden for a short time and I'm glad we were able to view them in their glory.

A couple of idiots ignored the "ROAD CLOSED" signs...



Now, anybody with half a brain knows you don't attempt to drive down Indian Canyon when it is raining.  Or, when MUD is flowing, but these two drivers did and they both got stuck.  And, YES...do you see the ROAD CLOSED sign and all the other ones?  And, there were signs on the other side of the mud, too...(shaking head...).  I was out that way taking photos of the windmills when I saw the flashing lights of the CalTrans truck (no...they didn't pull them out of the mud...).  They were there putting up MORE signs, warning drivers to turn around.  A tour bus even traveled down that road and had to turn around.  I mean, PEOPLE...really?  This is one of the most-frequently closed roads here in the desert...GET A CLUE!
